Judging by their size, nobody would expect bobcats to turn out to be rather aggressive fighters.
However, as this video shows, a trapped bobcat can be a bit of a menace, regardless of whether the people approaching it are trying to rescue it or harm it.
The two young men in this video came across a bobcat which somehow got caught in one of the traps they set out while hunting, and used a stick to pin it down and set it free.
However, the frightened animal put up quite a fight, because it had no idea that the two hunters posed no threat and simply wanted to help it.
“That was a very cool experience right there,” one of the men says after rescuing the bobcat, and his friend cannot help but agree with him.
